Lakeshore Community Action Program’s Door County Food Pantry Has a Wish!
If you are able to DONATE food for needy Door County residents, please print our “WISH LIST” and make up a bag full of items to provide assistance to households in our community! You may also donate monetarily (see below). Thank You!
Supporting our Food Pantry
The pantry is supported by local donations, food drives, Feeding America and USDA’s The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). We accept monetary donations to make food purchases at reduced prices and to keep the pantry operating. Anyone wishing to donate funding may do so when the pantry is open or through the DONATE button on this website. Please choose “Door County Food Pantry.”
Please be assured that all donations received remain within the county. Lakeshore Community Action Program (CAP) appreciates the many donors and partners who support this program!
INSTRUCTIONS DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
We are open 11 AM – 4 PM every Tuesday and Thursday at 131 S Third Ave in Sturgeon Bay. Due to COVID-19 our pantry is not “client choice” at this time. Bring a picture ID and show it at the pantry door. A volunteer will confirm your family size. Your pantry items will be prepared and brought to the end of the handicap ramp. At that time, please load your pantry into your vehicle and return the cart to the end of the ramp.
Lakeshore CAP’s Door County Food Pantry is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit program that provides on-going and emergency healthy food assistance to low and limited income residents. Your donation may be tax deductible.

Mobile Pantry for Subsidized Senior/Disabled Apartments
Starting May 7th and scheduled at several subsidized senior/disabled apartment units the first three Fridays of the month — a Mobile Pantry! Feel free to check with your apartment manager to see if you are a scheduled location, or to encourage them to call us if you are not. The office number is 920-684-7117.
The pantry in Manitowoc is continuing to operate by appointment. We ask that clients call the OFFICE 920-684-7117 after 9 AM to schedule a same day, possibly next day, appointment.
The pantry is typically open 1-4:30 PM Monday and 9-12 & 1-4 PM Tuesday and Wednesday. If we do not have scheduled appointments through the end of the day we have closed early at times.
We also do accommodate the walk up client during open hours, at least the first time. We then encourage them to make an appointment for subsequent visits.
Clients are scheduled every 15 minutes. It is important to maintain social distancing for clients to schedule appointments and to arrive on time.
There is plenty of food! The TEFAP guidelines have also been relaxed for right now (see below chart). This means MANY more families qualify. Please use the pantry. We are here to help!
